Heading to Alamance Tomorrow
Tomorrow afternoon I will load up the van with all my 18th century living history gear and head out to Burlington, NC. I will be assisting Alamance Battleground with their Colonial Living Week event on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is a week-long event during which the site hosts about 1,500 local school children and home schoolers. Having only two full-time staff members at the site means that they need lots of help to do this program. I will set up a colonial sailor display for the three days I am there, as well as helping with artillery demonstrations. My shipmate Mike Williams will be joining me on Monday, so it should be a good time.
